I love it! Very high quality, I don't feel like I have to worry about it falling apart. Didn't have to wait for long for it either! Thank you so much for your awesome product and I highly recommend!

Very soft, and the ink didn't crack after washing so that's a huge plus! It looks good!

It's lovely, and it showed up well within the expected timeframe. Thank you!
The ABC's of UE
The Unicorn Empire began with a little Sherlockian ABC book made for fun, and has been at a full run ever since. In 2011 I moved from Juneau, Alaska to live with my best friend Megan. While I absolutely hated screen printing when I took (and dropped!) a course in college, I had the hair brained idea of making t-shirts.
I shopped around, looking for a place where i could get them printed; but everything I saw was thick, chunky, and expensive. Services that offered a miniscule return in exchange for making a huge profit off of my art, or companies that simply used heavy plastisol inks on cheap shirts. I decided that I could try and do better.
The process of teaching myself to screen print was incredibly challenging, and I'm still learning things every single day. That first set of shirts was nothing but a big mess- but it was a start in the right direction! I learned to use water based, eco-friendly inks that have a soft feel on the fabric.
Now the Unicorn Empire has moved closer to Seattle, Washington and is run by Amber, Megan and the newest acquisition of the Empire, Kate. Every day the three of us work hard to make quality, hand made goods for the shows that we love!
I’m Amber, the artist and owner of Unicorn Empire. I have a BFA in Illustration from MCAD and I’ve been making things for as long as I can remember. In 2010 I started Unicorn Empire, named for my childhood love of My Little Pony and Star Wars.
